They kiss the «Ring of the Fisherman». It has an image of the Apostle Peter, and the Pope claims to be his successor.
The Vatican faithful claims not to be worshipers of idols. They say they just «venerate» them. Its simply not true. Many Catholics acknowledge that its wrong to bow down to statues in their Churches, wrong to kiss their idols. I agree with them
But few Catholics knows that the Pope himself forces his faithful to bow down, and kiss an idol. Many think, that when Kings and Prime Ministers bow down, they kiss the hand of the Pope, as some kind of sign of respect of the pontiff.
But what they all do, is to bow down and kiss the gold ring, that the Pope has on his fourth finger. The «Ring of the fisherman».
This ring is an idol of what the Vatican claims to be an image of the Apostles Peter, sitting in a boat. The ring also has the imprint of the name of the present Pope. When you bow down to kiss this gold ring, you break the Second Commandment and you accept and submit to the Apostolic succession of the popes in Rome.
“You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.
(end of scripture)
Even a ten year old boy can read and understand his Bible verse. No man shall make idols and images like this, neither should we bows down to them and kiss them. If this is not idol worship, than nothing is.
When a king bows down and kisses the Fisherman’s Ring on the finger of the Pope, he bows down to the same anti-Biblical Spiritual force that controls the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The only difference, is that the Iranian president kisses the hand of his Ayatollah.
When you read this, you might start to understand why Rome and Islam have struck a peace deal, and indulge in «interfaith dialogues», to promote the coming false World peace. They serve the same «god», who can never be my God. The God of the Bible.

The Ring of the Fisherman
The earliest mention of the Fisherman’s ring worn by the popes is in a letter of Clement IV written in 1265 to his nephew, Peter Grossi. The writer states that popes were then accustomed to seal their private letters with “the seal of the Fisherman”, whereas public documents, he adds, were distinguished by the leaden “bulls” attached (see BULLS AND BRIEFS). From the fifteenth century, however, the Fisherman’s ring has been used to seal the class of papal official documents known as Briefs. The Fisherman’s ring is placed, by the cardinal camerlengo on the finger of a newly elected pope. It is made of gold, with a representation of St. Peter in a boat, fishing, and the name of the reigning pope around it.

Kissing the Pope’s Ring
Kissing the Ring of the Fisherman, or the Pescatorio in Italian, is a Roman Catholic tradition that has been passed down for centuries.  Each newly ordained Pope is given a gold ring with his name in raised lettering and the image of St. Peter in a fishing boat. The Pope is believed to be the spiritual inheritor of the apostle Peter, who was known as one of the “fishers of men” (Mark 1:17). Originally the ring was used to seal documents, historically called papal briefs. However, this custom ended in 1842 when the wax seal was replaced by a stamp. Today, followers of the Catholic faith pay respect to the reining Pope by kneeling before him and kissing his ring.
